Small-town Ohioan. Literature addict. Culture junkie. Lover of life. Storyteller.
I spent my childhood surrounded by cornfields and dreaming of far-off magical places. I’ve spent much of my adulthood surrounded by far-off magical places and dreaming of cornfields.
This blog is the story of my life as I search for a happy medium between international explorations and adventures in my own backyard.
Past homes include: a childhood in rural Ohio, a college career in Cincinnati while I earned my English degree, a study-abroad year in England, and another year abroad teaching in Indonesia.
Currently residing in Florida, fulfilling a lifelong dream of living just outside Walt Disney World—which might seem juvenile until you consider that my senior thesis explored the themes of well-known fairy tales and discussed the role that the Disney films had in making those themes relevant to a modern audience. Stories, in any form, are kind of my passion.
My favorite adventures to date include:
Seeing my favorite city from above.
Experiencing Indonesia’s Kartini Day celebrations in a local school.
Watching majestic pink dolphins in the South China Sea. (Coming soon!)
A spiritual encounter with bats in Bali.
Surviving a year in Indonesia, the biggest challenge of my life.
